The goals of or Maqasid al-Shariah (MaS) constitute the ultimate objectives to be pursued by any society. We use the five-fold framework given by Al-Ghazali. Broadly, these are articulated as protection and nurturing of faith, self, intellect, posterity or progeny and property
Set by the United Nations, the seventeen (17) SDGs capture a global consensus on goals to be pursued by all nations. A mapping of SDGs against MaS shows a high level of confluence between the two.
